Red Nose Day

On Arrow, Oliver Queen has had 5 years in Lian Yu to prepare himself to be physically and mentally capable of “saving the city.” Being a vigilante who willingly takes on criminals, metahumans, dark magic powered warlords, and even aliens, he’s gotta be in tip top shape to do so. As a result, actor Stephen Amell is known for his physical prowess. We’ve all seen him use the Salmon Ladder, which is no easy feat even for regular stuntmen to use. In addition to performing most of his own stunts on Arrow and the other DC TV shows within the “Arrowverse,” the actor has appeared in WWE Raw and even performed on their pay-per-view Summerslam event where he performed in a tag team event. Sure, wrestling is “fake,” but the stunts are real and Amell gives 110% in all his physical activities.

In a world full of differing opinions, one thing that we can all agree on is the fact that Anna Kendrick is absolutely amazing.  After breaking the box office this weekend with Pitch Perfect 2, the lovely actress has decided to do something else to make sure her place in our hearts will remain there for as long as possible.  How?  By playing our new favorite archeologist, Indianna Jones, for Red Nose Day, that’s how.

The BBC has just released this special two-part mini Dr. Who episode for the corporation’s Red Nose Day fundraiser event which happened this past Friday.

OK, first of all, *In my 10th Doctor voice* WHAT!? the hell is Red Nose Day? A public appreciation day for drunkenness? A day of observance to those afflicted with hideous red growths on their noses, otherwise known as clowneitis? No asshole! Red Nose Day is a day like no other when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and change countless lives in the UK and Africa. Geeze ok, it’s a good cause, but I think the title is offensive to those suffering with clowneitis. Just sayin’.

While Doctor Who doesn’t officially return until next month, BBC One has given us a little glimpse of the Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), and Rory (Arthur Darville) in Steven Moffat’s Red Nose Day mini-episodes, “Space” and “Time,”.

Doctor Who usually tackles questions like “Why are we here?” and “How do you define humanity?” Today, they tackle “Would Amy Pond do herself if she got the chance?” Enjoy 😉
